I know several "virtuoso" musicians and they all had a similar quality about them - They HATED the Grateful Dead. Not just the music, but the whole concept, as it flew in the face on conventional wisdom in regard to music - THANK GOD!

I didn't get the chance to see Pig until late in the game. Saw him at the Felt Forum shows and The Academy of Music(saw three or four shows from that run) What really stands out for me is when he sang Big Boss Man and Next Time You See Me. I missed the Lovelights and the raps. The line in Next Time You See Me "Ya know you lied, cheated and then the audience in unison Wa Oh! for so long." was great.He really did have the audience in the palm of his hand. I remember turning to my friend and asked who this guy was, she said Pigpen. I said "He's fuckin' too much"! She agreed and told me you should have seen him a couple of years ago.Yes I should have.

Great stuff, BVD...

And, BINGO!!! Double dumb ass that I am: Big Boss Man!

That is another of his 'greats'.

Crap. I can't believe I didn't mention that one earlier...

That's a neat memory, and you didn't even see his showstoppers!
